Tom Leighton, Co-founder & CEO, Akamai
Geoffrey Moore, Author & Advisor
Due to exploding usage of smart phones, connected personal devices, IoT, video, and more, a recent report predicts that more content will cross the Internet in 2020 than in all the Internet years before 2013 combined—and it’s only getting started. One of the earliest Internet content delivery network (CDN) companies—formed in 1998 in anticipation of Internet congestion—has now reached $2.2B in revenue with servers in 1400 networks around the globe. If you shop online, download music, or watch web videos, you’ve likely used this company’s cloud platform. Its history and accomplishments have given its leader a unique set of insights and perspectives on global traffic patterns and related decisions, risks, and opportunities.
That company is Akamai and its co-founder and CEO is Tom Leighton. In this future-focused conversation with Geoffrey Moore, Leighton will offer his personal views on global Internet trends and their implications. Are big cloud concentrations changing the shape of the Internet, and if so, how? What do increasing traffic and other matters such as globalization, bots, net neutrality, and mobile mean to the industry? This exclusive, intimate conversation promises to deliver new insight and understanding about the Internet ahead.
